Modular design helps school win LEED Gold
August 11, 2010
With eight buildings pieced together from 59 modules, High Tech High serves 500 students in San Diego’s South Bay. The charter school covers 32,807 sf; a steel canopy connecting the buildings adds another 12,645 sf. William Scotsman provided the modular units, and San Diego-based contractor BYCOR assembled them. Earning LEED Gold certification, High Tech High features light fixtures with motion-control sensors, low-VOC paint, high-density fiberboards made from recycled newsprint, and locally available materials.
